The wife of a Fort Bliss staff sergeant pleaded not guilty to murder charges today. Our media partners at the El Paso Times report that Shawntrell Dawkins pleaded not guilty to capital murder, murder and injury to a child.
Last month, her husband Sgt. Nakia Dawkins was found guilty of injury to a child. Milayna Harris died last year while the Dawkins' were taking care of her. Nakia is set to be sentenced in April.
